Many fans of The Walking Dead are all about shipping Carol Peletier (Melissa McBride) and Daryl Dixon (Norman Reedus) — or Caryl as they are more affectionately known — but towards the end of Season 3 some fans picked up on another potential pairing: Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln) and Michonne (Danai Gurira).
Since Michonne became a part of Team Prison (albeit with some reluctance) she and Rick have had an interesting dynamic. Rick was able to get the katana-wielding gal to function as part of a group, and she stepped up when he was so overcome with grief that he couldn’t function.
“It’s very clear that she has respect for Rick,” Danai tells TVLine. “Seeing the way Rick handles himself, handles his community, handles his son is something that she can respect.
Calling the romance chatter “fascinating”, Danai says she doesn’t know what lies ahead for Rick and Michonne. However, a deeper relationship will develop between Michonne and Rick’s son Carl Grimes (Chandler Riggs).
“Their connection has grown. She likes to give him treats and keep him healthy, which is also what his father wants. It’s a nice progression,” Danai concludes.
Do you think Rick, Michonne, and Carl are destined to be one happy family? Tell us your thoughts and theories below!
